"Don't Be a Fool!"

Don't Be a Fool!
The music on this instrumental disk is stylistically diverse and runs the gamut from simple and melodic to rhythmically complex with odd meters and unusual harmonies. It is by turns scary, beautiful, funny, strange, and calming.

A new CD is in the works. Information will be available through this site with respect to a release date.

All selections composed by George M. Lowe except Charley James, which is traditional. Compositional assistance on "Are you the man . . . ?" provided by Michael Harrell.

Performed by George M. Lowe on Acoustic & Electric Guitars, Bass Guitar, Keyboards, Percussion, B flat & Bass Clarinets, Alto Saxophone, Voice, Flipper, etc. B flat Clarinet on The Land of Nod & "Are You the Man . . . ?" played by Michael Harrell. Voice Lesson on Mobo (bad) by Todd Michau.
